Optical stimulation of living cells is an innovative and success- ful tool, having a significant impact on neuroscience. A recently synthesized am- phiphilic azobenzene, named Ziapin2, has been developed exploiting a non-covalent approach for targeting the membrane and achieving cell photostimulation. Here, we investigate, using both experimental data and mathematical modelling, the effect of repetitive light stimulation on the cell response. We discuss some possible explana- tions for the drop in the stimulation efficiency in reiterated stimulation processes.
